Avenida da Liberdade is the best address in Lisbon and it is now possible to stay at the upscale AVANI Avenida Liberdade Lisbon Hotel. The newly launched Hotel has a perfect location just off fashion-forward Avenida da Liberdade, which attracts an eclectic crowd to its tree-lined esplanades with big-name designer labels and continental sidewalk cafes.
“We are proud to launch our first European hotel in Lisbon,” said Alejandro Bernabe, Group Director AVANI Hotels & Resorts. “Lisbon is the perfect fit for the AVANI brand as it has an incredible sense of design and community and it is affordable”.
The hotel, formerly Tivoli Jardim Hotel, has undergone an extensive 1.5 million Euro refurbishment. The upgrade includes the redesign of the façade, the guest rooms, lobby, reception, the installation of an AVANIFIT gym and the relaunch of well-known Olivier Restaurant. The open plan and retro spirit of the lobby merges chill, social and work areas, offering a stylish communal space in which to relax.
The 119 AVANI Standard, Premier, Deluxe and Family Rooms are comfortable and contemporary and the style is inspired by the brand`s nod to a restful sleep. Each room is decorated in a fresh and simplistic style. Subtle shades of plum, black and white lend the rooms a serene air and modern amenities include a Nespresso coffee-maker, satellite TV, well-stocked mini-bar and high-speed WiFi. All AVANI Premier, Deluxe and Family Rooms have balconies and AVANI Standard rooms have garden views.
The Olivier Restaurant celebrates contemporary, ingredient-focused food with a strong Portuguese accent. The new concept décor brings warmth and character to the space with wooden flooring and a warm palette of burnt sienna, azure and burnished gold which is brought to life in the furnishings, suede upholstery, wallpaper and mosaic tiles. Subtle imagery of the iconic Andorinha black swallow is revealed in the wallpaper and an outdoor terrace surrounded by olive and ficus trees provides alfresco seating.
Guests are able to enjoy a buffet breakfast outdoors on the hotel’s sunny terrace, the perfect place to enjoy an espresso and butter croissant with lashings of peach jam, before hitting the streets.
AVANIFIT supports guests’ aim to continue with their normal exercise routines and the compact gym features the latest cardio equipment. The hotel also provides a jogging map and, for those wanting to combine exploring the city with exercise, a Power Walk Sightseeing Tour is a great way to see Lisbon and it provides a good workout, up and down Lisbon’s seven hills.
The Palacete Conference and Events Centre next door to the hotel, offers three floors of event space with a capacity for up to 260 people. The ground floor has a large reception area, the first floor offers three function rooms with varied configuration capabilities and the top floor houses an exclusive Boardroom with its own foyer and elevator access.
AVANI appeals to modern independent travellers who seek out new and modern experiences, meet locals and taste authentic flavours. AVANI Avenida Liberdade’s advantageous location provides guests with a comfortable and well-priced base from which to explore Lisbon’s modern design and contemporary eateries.
Southeast and a 10-minute uphill walk is Príncipe Real, a charming leafy neighbourhood, known for its architecture, antique shops and galleries. Discover authentic craftsmanship, art galleries, antique shops and shopping galleries before heading west for the pastelerías and literary cafés of Chiado.
Lisbon has joined the ranks of other design capitals. The city is experiencing an urban renewal as neighbourhoods are reclaimed and reimagined. The dockside LX Factory in Alcántara, the Village Underground on the river – a creative co-op constructed out of shipping containers, Fábrica Braco de Parata, an arts centre in an old munitions factory and the new Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology in Belém all herald a new wave of design innovation in the city, but at the heart of this creative enterprise is the desire to entertain; to have a good time, a core characteristic of this big-hearted city.
The hotel’s convenient location, only 15 minutes’ drive from Lisbon International Airport, is within walking distance of the underground station, Rossio train station and Tram 28. Situated just off fashionable Avenida da Liberdade, globally known for its luxury A to Z fashion stores from Armani to Zegna, theatres, beautiful squares and intimate restaurants, AVANI Avenida Liberdade is the perfect spot for modern travellers wishing to explore Lisbon’s epicurean delights, hotspots, architecture and landmark attractions.
